The learning objectives of the day were to enable participants to:

• Use an analytical framework that addresses several dimensions that are relevant to public policies and important to document (effectiveness, unintended effects, equity, cost, feasibility and acceptability).
• Construct the logic model of a public policy in order to guide data collection.
• Develop a literature review strategy that is both rigorous and adapted to public policies.
• Establish the steps to follow to organize deliberative processes in order to enhance the data from the literature review with the expertise of local actors.
